The Egoic Form
Chatter within the mind, may initially be a concern to some within meditation. A solution to employ, would be the building of a form that is symbolic of the egoic mind. This form could be what some call a "shadow-self," which is well symbolized by a simple darkened outline body, or energy shape.
You see, within the stories of Robert Monroe, and the Monroe Institute, it was described by the participants, that the presence of perceived spiritual "others," was common. These "entities" would arrive to assist the meditative adventurers in their efforts, in order to experience what is meant by being "out-of-body." This then became my own experience.
I discovered first-hand, in the earlier months of Hemi-Sync technology use, that these pressing shadow-forms were interacting with me. They had been realized as present in my awareness, and they were attempting to get my attention. To do this, they would put their whole heads into mine, and the experience was the shift of consciousness to seeing through the eyelids. Here, I just observed in this altered state, and would watch as they floated near, and then blew on my forehead. Once, it was so heavily done, that the reflexive mechanism encountered when air is ejected into one's face, was my response. But, I smiled. There are often soft pressures upon my body, and these correspond to a perceived shadow form seen in the "shifted state."
Intent and the House of the Outer Mind
I built the egoic, symbolic form, and began to lovingly allow it to include all of my thoughts. These are represented in my mind as dots of light that float from my perceived center, to the egoic form. Once these two conceptualizations were melded, I used my energetic, spiritual arms, and moved the form to the left and behind me. Initially, the egoic-form's use is that of a respected, personified tool - a conceptualization that has been personified in shape and function. Eventually, through continued and repeated practice of this form as a positive symbol, it became Real to me, and now literally houses my outer mind.
The egoic body form is best created with positive intent, and gratitude. It serves a vital function, the ego, by assisting in navigation through physical matter reality, and the concurrent reflections to self that become beliefs. To create this form, simply achieve the meditative state through the "Energy-Building," body-relaxing meditation from the last post, and then ascend to your platform/mansion. Relax in whatever way feels natural and peaceful, and then begin focusing about 6 inches in front of you. Let whatever appears, congeals, or lilts into focus, be what it is, and then use an affirmation.
Use an Affirmation
State something like, "I am more than my physical body. Because I am more than physical matter, I deeply desire to expand and experience the creation of an egoic image that will be the useful body of my outer egoic self." You could also add, "I also desire the assistance of those individuals, who are at a level higher than my own, in the construction of this form." Then, you can sit and watch what happens - observe. Or, you can take the initiative, and begin the visualization exercise in building this form.
Test, examine, in love, and see what happens. When you have built the form, give love and thanks to it. At this point, you can now move on to the next visualization exercise, or sit quietly and watch your own mind. Always love and gratitude. Always.
Shifting-Self and the Other Eyes
This is a description of what occurs on occasion from within meditation, and it is a perceived shift of my conscious mind's location. My experience is no longer, when this occurs, the location of orientation upon the chosen Higher Platform. Instead, I suddenly am "switched," and now see clearly through my eyelids. And then, when I look, there are energy forms in the space of my room, and around me.
I remain relaxed, accepting, and positive. These forms are very quiet. What I mean, is that their subtle forms are solid, yet transparent, and I understand that a line of force from within my Spiritual Center is projecting beyond perceived physical-matter-reality limits, enabling me to have the experience, and see in this way. This way of seeing from within the meditative mind, was achieved within about 6 months of devoted meditation, with my concept of Higher Self enwrapping me as my Spiritual Suit.
By understanding this type of information through one's own experience, one can see the powerful evidence of his own Higher Mind at work. It is realized a gift, to see, as described above. But, are these forms imagined? Yes, of course! The Imagination is a Holy Mechanism, and when wielded with positive intent formed from one's spiritual integrity, we see and comprehend Higher Things.
But, they are also Real to me - through my honed, exercised and valued spiritual adventures within myself, with Myself. The egoic form, my shifting-self, and the other eyes now available to me, are Realized as spiritual knowns, within spiritual matter, and as spiritual tools.
To see the Light at the end of the tunnel, while smiling!
